Talstar® 100 EC is a synthetic pyrethroid insecticide/miticide with a broad spectrum of activity controlling a wide range of chewing and sucking insects on kiwifruit, tomatoes, Kabocha, pumpkins and vegetable brassicas. Talstar® 100 EC kills pests through both contact and ingestion. Talstar® 100 EC is not systemic so thorough coverage is essential.
It is an offence to use this product on animals.
Directions for Use
Mixing: Pour the required quantity into the partly filled spray tank with agitation running, and complete filling of the tank. Add a non-ionic wetting agent to improve wetting of the leaf surface if necessary.
Application: Apply in sufficient water to obtain complete coverage. For horticultural crops, the rates are for high volume spraying to run-off. For concentrate spraying adjust dilution rate accordingly. Use the high rate under high insect pressure and when spraying on a 10 - 14 day schedule. Alternatively, use crop monitoring to determine when to spray for appropriate crops.
Resistance to this pesticide may develop from excess use. To minimise this risk use strictly in accordance with label instructions.
Diamond back moth caterpillars - avoid using this insecticide exclusively all season and avoid unnecessary spraying. Maintain
good cultural practices.
Tomato fruit worm - DO NOT apply before the 7th of January and avoid unnecessary spraying. Maintain good cultural practices.
Aphids - If necessary, to spray twice for aphids, use an insecticide with a different mode of action. DO NOT use a synthetic pyrethroid. If Tomato fruit worm is present in a squash crop prior to 7th January, DO NOT spray Talstar® 100 EC in line with the tomato fruit worm strategy above.
